Ollywood at a glance in 2012

Parshuram wins mega movie battle
This year was the year of big releases in Ollywood — Anubhav Mohanty left no stones unturned to make his dream project, ACP Ranveer, a huge success, Babusaan’s Love Master also gave him stiff competition. Both the films did fairly well at the box office, but did not set the cash registers ringing. The film that came silently and took away the cake was Arindam Roy’s Parshuram. This film can be pegged as 2012’s surprise hit. Anubhav and Babusaan are all set to bounce back with their upcoming releases, Mo Duniya Tu Hi Tu and Diwana Diwani, respectively. However, we can definitely say that Arindam (his next is Paribeni Kehi Alaga Kari) is one Odia actor whom we can look out for in 2013.

Aparajita turns producer
After making a niche for herself in the Odia film industry with her superb acting prowess, veteran actor Aparajita Mohanty finally turned producer with her first venture, Love Master, in 2012. The actor started her own production house named Sai Maa. The reason she cited was that she wanted to make a few good films for the audience. However, speculations were rife that it could be a good reason to boost her actor-son Babushan’s career. Her first production did well and received good response from the audience.

A new star in Ollywood sky
The last part of the year saw another star son making his foray in the industry with lot of enthusiasm and confidence. Amlan Das, son of veteran actor Mihir Das, is about to make his debut in SK Muralidharan’s upcoming movie Target. The Muhurat that was recently held in Bhubaneswar witnessed almost everyone from Ollywood attending the do. Though there are other star sons already in the industry, movie buffs predict that Amlan can really make a difference with his sound technological knowledge, having done his Bachelors in Direction.

Bobby and Koel make it real
The year 2012 also witnessed two reel-life actors getting hitched. Bobby Mishra and Koel Banerjee tied the knots in January this year. Bobby, who had started his career with music albums before turning to films, had a brief courtship with Koel, the popular Bengali actress, who has also worked in a couple of Odia movies. Their love-story had started on the film-sets. The duo, though initially sought to underplay the affair, acknowledged the relationship later. The couple had their marriage ceremony in Kolkata and had a grand reception in Bhubaneswar where Who’s Who of the Odia film industry was present.

Tearful adieu to Raicharan
December 2012 wasn’t however all good as the industry lost its revered actor Raicharan Das, on December 9. The actor who met with an accident and succumbed to his injuries is survived by two sons. He was 72. Apart from acting in movies, Das also had many appearances in devotional albums and various TV serials.
